OST Jason's Lyric

Though, Jason's Lyric wasn't in the theaters that long, the soundtrack did very well; hit number one on the R&B charts, and peaked at number 17 on the billboard hot 100 in 1994. The soundtrack contained three charted singles; "U Will Know," (A 20 year old D'Angelo wrote and produced the song) featuring vocals from D'Angelo, Tevin Campbell, R. Kelly, Gerald Levert, Tony Toni Tone, El DeBarge, Portrait, Christopher Williams, After 7, Intro, Joe, Brian McKnight, H-Town, Keith Sweat, DRS, Usher, Damion Hall, and Al B. Sure!, "If You Think You're Lonely Now," (a Bobby Womack cover) performed by a (solo) K-Ci Hailey, the soundtrack's finest moment, and the Brian McKnight number "Crazy Love." The soundtrack consists with many G-Funk moments; Twinz "First Round Draft Pick," Ahmad "That's How It Is," Spice-1 "Nigga Sings The Blues," and Five Footer Crew "Walk Away." The soundtrack gets bluesy with Buddy Guy's "This City Needs Help," and also contains a latino rap moment with LSD's "Love Is The Key." Tears For Fears product Oleta Adams contributes a Jimmy Cliff cover "Many Rivers To Cross," in one of the finer moments of the soundtrack, and Los Angeles based bad boys DRS contribute as well. Albert Collins and Mint Condition collaborate, followed up by the smokin' "Just Like My Papa," by Tony Toni Tone. Jason's Lyric is a fine example of a soundtrack that surpassed the film itself, and most artists that contribute never had a finer moment.
